Wings & Wheels Model Spectacular – Established 1989
The UK’s Longest Running Radio Control Model Show!
Three enthusiastic modellers worked together to stage what was (and still is) one of the largest model shows of its kind in the country. Working together with the airfield staff and model trade they produced a huge show displaying all types of radio controlled models. Staged on the airfield and inside one of the hangars this proved a huge success. However, after three years they had ‘had enough’!
That is where we stepped in! With a huge amount of experience in the Model Trade along with putting on similar Shows our team were ready for the challenge and took the show over in 1989. After a few years the show had to move to its current site on the airfield due to the enormous Saturday market which dominates the intersection of the airfield on the Saturday. This was financially necessary for the airfield if it was to continue operating, so Wings & Wheels was moved to the North End of the site.
Over the years, this has developed into a truly Spectacular event and has featured some of the largest and most spectacular Radio Control Model Aircraft in the world as part of its flying programme.

In 2019 we are to launch UK Drone Feast which is to be a great addition to the biggest feast of RC Models in the East. UK DroneFest will have a dedicated flight line and will feature the latest in Drone tech with live demos and racing.
